So I want the power button on an activity to run some script (stop and clear a playlist) and execute some actions (turn of 3 devices by IR). I know this can't be done without creating a dummy button which I've done and I can call it with CF.widget("POWER","ACTION").executeActions(); and that works fine.If I put the script after it:

sendCommand("Stop()");
sendCommand("ClearPlayList(0)");
refreshPlaylist();

That script doesn't run. I've even tried putting that script in another button and doing

CF.widget("CLEAR","ACTION").executeActions();

CF.widget("POWER","ACTION").executeActions();

but whichever one is called last doesn't run. What am I doing wrong??

Use scheduleActions() vs executeActions().

Search for try/catch executeActions.

execute/scheduleActions ONLY executes the actions in an ActionList. If you have script that you need to run as a result of pressing a button, you can use a panel label that contains the script (up to 32KB) and then eval() that script

var myScript = CF.widget("SCRIPT1","MYSCRIPTS","SCRIPTS").label;

eval(myScript);

If you are interested in a single button, put your IR actions into the ActionList, then put this into your script and then make sure that in PEP2, the ProntoScript and not the ActionList is showing.

sendCommand("Stop()");
sendCommand("ClearPlayList(0)");
refreshPlaylist();
try {
// within a button, 'this' refers to the button.
this.executeActions();
}catch(e) {
// ignore actionlist error
}

Send me a small config to my email address containing an example of what you are trying to do and I'll have a look. A small writeup of the buttons you are wanting to use, pages, etc will be much appreciated.

Note that if you are trying to execute the actions of 2 widgets and the first widget does a Jump then you will get an ActionListError.


You must then resort to 2 try catch blocks or use scheduleActions().

try {
CF.widget("WIDGET1").executeActions();
} catch(e) {}

try {
CF.widget("WIDGET2").executeActions();
} catch(e) {}

Send me a simple file and I'll have a look as it is likely something really simply you are missing.

Hi Lyndel, sorry for the delay in replying its been a bit hectic here - I didn't manage to get script and actions working from one button but I've got a work around where I don't actually need that to happen now.
